Allergic rhinitis

Endless sneezing, runny nose, and red, itchy eyes – do these symptoms sound familiar? Try to avoid the tissue flood and discover how natural salt therapy can help you combat allergic rhinitis.

Allergic rhinitis: understanding and identification

Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, is a prevalent allergic condition characterized by chronic inflammation of the nasal mucosa. Its symptoms can vary widely and are often unique to each individual.

The primary culprits behind hay fever are allergens, including pollen, molds, animal dander, dust mites, workplace-related allergens, as well as certain foods and medications. This heightened immune response leads to an increased production of histamine, causing irritation in the nasal mucosa.

Hay fever symptoms

  • reduced nasal patency to obstruction
  • discharge and itching in the nose
  • stuffy nose
  • excessive sneezing
  • redness, itching and watery eyes
  • impaired swallowing and itching in the throat
  • headaches

Relieving allergic rhinitis with salt therapy

Salt therapy offers several key benefits for individuals with allergic rhinitis.

Thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory properties, salt reduces inflammatory processes in the respiratory tract. This way, it reduces swelling in the respiratory passages, improves airway permeability, and facilitates breathing.

Inhaled salt micro-particles aid in dissolving accumulated mucus in the respiratory passages. This makes the mucus less viscous and easier to expel from the respiratory tract, improving its permeability.

The antibacterial properties of salt help in killing harmful bacteria, viruses, and allergens in the respiratory system, which cause inflammations and increased mucus production. This prevents further infection development.

Salt therapy helps reduce the level of IgE-type antibodies produced in the body in response to various allergens. As a result, the immune system reacts more mildly to allergenic triggers and builds its natural defenses against the specific condition.

Salt therapy not only eliminates viruses, bacteria, and allergens but also strengthens the body’s defense system, further enhancing its effectiveness in alleviating allergic rhinitis symptoms.

Recommended halotherapy treatment plan

To attain enduring benefits, we advise adhering to the following frequency and duration of salt therapy sessions.

before allergy season starts

Although even a less frequent sessions can provide relief, the crucial factor for achieving lasting results is maintaining consistency and regularity. This approach should continue until hay fever symptoms begin to diminish. Once that occurs, you can gradually reduce the frequency of visits to our studio and incorporate salt therapy into your routine based on your individual preferences and availability. This will help bolster your immune system, enhance overall health, reduce stress, or serve as a relaxation method.

Why you should give salt therapy a chance

Overall, it can be said that salt therapy naturally aids in allergic rhinitis by thinning mucus, reducing inflammation and the frequency of allergic reactions, and improving the overall health of the respiratory tract.
